WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

popnfreshoak-kt-June 09, 2013-009I find inspiration in many things, but when it comes to my job, I find I’m inspired by fashion and style.  I love looking at images and magazines and videos.  I love people watching.  I love interacting with people.

NAILS, DONE.

grey

Every Thursday I paint my nails.  I’ll try any color, I’m not afraid.  What I didn’t realize about my new habit, was that it would turn me into a hand model!

I AM NOT MY HAIR

IMG_4796I would like to have a bit of an open discussion about hair.  To be more specific, a **black woman’s hair.  I’ve been styling for over 15 years and have never felt that my hair was defining me everyday.  When I cut it off a few months back, I didn’t realize the backlash that would ensue… My husband hated it, and some clients felt like I would be making a huge mistake.  Some people even said, ‘too bad, she’s a pretty girl…’.  I’m not sure I understood that when I was born, it was my duty to choose only hairstyles that would be comforting to all the human beings on earth.  Me choosing to cut my hair has offended some…  I didn’t realize that cutting off MY OWN HAIR, would bring so many opinions up.

A Poem

oct0502snowfallAn excerpt from Two Tramps in Mud Time

The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.

Robert Frost

Just a bit of info…

IMG_4959This instagram image sparked a bit of controversy over the last weekend.  It’s difficult to know how people feel about decor choices but as one disgruntled follower commented, we started to think that maybe some of you were also wondering.  We are an Eco-friendly hair salon.  We never said ever that we were vegans/vegetarians.  We never once said that we don’t eat meat.  What we have said is that we are a full service hair salon with an Eco-friendly edge.  Cow hide rugs are in fact very Eco-friendly.

hey boys…

milan-mens-fashion-week-spring-summer-2015-2-featured-imageIt’s time for the guys to get some love.  This week we’re featuring all things men.  I thought I’d start with the spring/summer looks for 2015.  Although these looks are directly from the runway and aren’t ready to wear, they still show what the fashion is for men right now.
